Hi Carolyn, I am on Celebrex as needed and seems to help with my RA. You just have to be careful not to depend on it, as can irritate your stomach. I added you to my team. Hope you do well!

I took Celebrex a few years back. It worked for awhile, but nothing really works long term. At least that has been my experience.
I’m now on my 2nd infusion of Simponi and keeping my fingers crossed that it going to make me feel better.

Hi Carolyn. I took Naproxyn at one point, and I went off it as I didn't tolerate it well. I take 11 pills a day, from vitamins to real meds and OTC meds. (I take one baby aspirin before bed.) I don't get shots. I am allergic to a bunch of meds that I no longer take. I am on Celebrex, and I do pretty well with it. I haven't had any noticeable bad reactions. It has helped with the RA as well. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

Celebrex didn't work very well for me meloxicam worked better. Then after a while it also stopped. Back to tylenol. and alive. DR. said that it's ok off and on again even with taking methotrexate.
